    Won't this destroy seeding? As once you've finished watching it you'll stop seeding.

    Image where we'd be if the MPAA / RIAA decided to embrace technology this way instead of trying to brutally beat it into submission at every turn :duh:

    Well they would have the "master" servers which will be the main seeders i guess. Just the people watching it will also be helping seeding while they watch. It wont eliminate the BW costs, but it will cut them down drastically.

    I live the iPlayer stream, I was stuck at work the other saturday waiting for automated backups and other month end stuff to finish, so I watched Ashes to Ashes, its nice getting paid to watch BBC programs :p and I dont even have a TV at home or a TV licence :eek:

    If the content was over 30 mins, then I guess this would cause selfish people unknowningly to seed more!

    if you watch anime renting is by no means an option. it wouldn't even be available, and even if it was, it wouldn't be subbed. I rather normal torrenting to streamed.

    why cant we just get multicast implemented on the web

    I mean, that's basically what this is trying to be (if im reading correctly), except there are already standards in place

    i guess, unless the movies are of low enough quality that download speeds >> playback speeds.
